Overview

In racing, you’re in or you’re out. Sometimes both at the same time…

Extreme Racing, Book 2

Go ahead, call Callie Monroe the queen of fools. She already does. After NASCAR slammed its doors in her face, she came up with the idea for the X-TREME Racing League. Now she’s all but relegated to pit row while her business partner—aka XRL’s bankroll—takes the credit.

One look at NASCAR champion Derrick Derringer red-lines Callie’s fantasy gauge. And when he actually notices her next to her Playboy-hot boss, he makes her sweat.

Derrick has always been attracted to the studious type, but Callie’s got the cherry on top of her beauty and brains: she’s a gear head. She’s also scared to death of him. He’s never had to work hard to get a woman in his bed, but with Callie, he finds himself changing tactics for a prize he never expected. Her heart.

Callie has no intention of being Derrick’s next “checkered flag”, but if she’s to lure him over to XRL, she’ll play the game. A dangerous one. Not only because his kiss sends her focus sliding out of control. There’s a saboteur who seems intent on putting XRL into the wall—no matter how many people have to die.

Warning: The author doesn’t guarantee this book will help you “get lucky”, but does have documented proof that the love, laughter, naughtiness and hot, hot, hot sex in this book will leave you gasping for air. Dangerous curves ahead!

    Hot Read

    Welcome to the X-Treme Racing League, where not only is the action happening fast on the track, but off it as well. Behind the scenes woman Callie Monroe created this idea after the big guys shut her out. That was fine with her, and now she has something new to look forward to. She just needs some drivers.

    Callie hides behind her glasses, she doesn't go out and "live' much. She stays away from men and relationships, though I never fully learned why. There isn't much background for Callie to understand why she does the things she does. What comes off the most from Callie's character is the shyness factor. She's a very intelligent woman, but she doesn't fully allow herself to shine. She lets herself get pushed around by her boss Veronica. And what Veronica wants, Veronica gets. Veronica sets her sights on having big time racer Derrek Derringer on the league, and pushes Callie to pressure Derrik.

    Derrek has a reputation, and getting Callie to open up is like pulling teeth. He's intrigued by her, and despite the fact he loves where he races, he can't help but want to do this for Callie. Though it comes with strings -- at first.

    Burning Rubber is a novel of push and pull, fast paced thrills, and a little bit of suspense added to the mix. The characters are fun, though a little more background would have made them sparkle even more. The push away/ come back that Callie does with Derrek didn't come with much of an explanation as I'd hoped it would. The sex scenes are hot, not too graphic but enough to make your toes curl. Ms. Britton creates another fun and exiting adventure featuring characters in a racing sport. Overall the story is engaging and riveting.

    Do you enjoy sports themed romance books? A hot hero who knows what he wants and goes for it? A shy woman finally turning into a butterfly when she meets a man with genuine interest in her? Then may I suggest race to your nearest on line bookseller and pick up a copy of this hot book.
